Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla Sign Get Colorful With Jason Derulo for “Swalla” Video
The Gil Green-directed visual for the uptempo dance track is full of eye-popping imagery. Jason and a group and dancers get down on a wet stage that punctuates their every move. "Shimmy shimmy yay, shimmy yay, shimmy ya (drank)/Swalla-la-la (drank)/Swalla-la-la (swalla-la-la)/Swalla-la-la/Freaky, freaky gyal/My freaky, freaky gyal," he sings on the chorus.
Ty Dolla gets in the mix, crooning while surrounded by dancing ladies. Nicki shows up to close things out rocking another style of the visor she's been seen wearing lately, rapping in an asymmetrical rainbow-colored hallway.
The track is the lead single off Derulo's upcoming fifth solo studio album. This song has significance as one of the Nicki verses where she appeared to shade Remy Ma. On the line in question, Nicki raps, “I gave these bitches two years, now your time’s up/Bless her heart, she throwing shots but every line sucks.”
